The Wellbeing Retreat on Silver Island in Greece is a 7 day immersion into balancing your Divine Feminine and Masculine energies through movement, breath, stillness and creativity. Together we will gather on this private island to practice Yoga, Qoya, Breath Exercises and Meditation. We will rest. We will recalibrate our nervous system and remember our essence is wise, wild and free.
This is your invitation to fall deeply in love with yourself once more, the way that you did when you were a tiny baby and you marvelled at your own tiny hands and toes. Take this week to dive into your own heart, your own body, your own being and allow the full embodiment of the miracle that is you to reconnect with your awareness.
By being still, by breathing mindfully, by remembering our creative essence and by harnessing movement as medicine we can fully embrace that we are magnificent souls having a human experience.
It's nothing new, its simply a remembering. You have all that you need within you. Take a moment to remember.
Every day of the retreat will open with a Qoya session. Qoya classes are based on the idea that through movement we remember. We remember our essence is wise, wild and free. Wise draws on the ancient wisdom of yoga, Wild calls on the creative expression of dance. Free calls on expanding our capacity to enjoy being in our body through feminine movement.
Qoya is accessible to every age, shape and size. There is no way you can do it wrong, the only way you know you are doing it right is that it feels good. This deceptively simple movement practice has a profound way of bringing you face to face with your truth.
Wellbeing Rituals® are simple, sustainable daily practices of wellbeing tools that soothe the nervous system and recalibrate the body to maintain emotional, physical and mental wellbeing. By exploring the tools of movement, breath exercises, simple meditation practices and creative themes, we will discover the tools that suit you.
This Retreat is dedicated to uncovering the most potent daily ritual for you. Your bespoke Wellbeing Ritual® will be a transformational daily practice within a realistic time frame for your actual lifestyle, allowing you to anchor each day in living an embodied, conscious and bountiful life.
Silver Island is a privately owned Island dedicated to impeccable retreats. This is truly a place you can unwind and merge with nature and self, where modern distractions become a distant memory. This paradise island will be your safe place to shed the layers of illusion and become more completely true to yourself, exploring the tools of movement, breath, stillness and creativity to remember your essence is wise, wild and free.
THE DIVINE ENERGIES OF MASCULINE AND FEMININE
We are each made of masculine and feminine energies, which enable us to be both proactive and effective (the masculine) and creative and reflective (the feminine). Both energies are essential to whole living and can be balanced through the practices of Wellbeing Rituals® and Qoya. This retreat invites you to harmonise and nurture the balance within you of masculine and feminine energy.
By inviting the intelligence of your own body to communicate through movement, breath, stillness and creativity, you create opportunity for the truth to emerge. With every layer of illusion that you shed, you will remember your truth, your magnificence, your purpose and your ability to love life.
When you leave, your inner voice will radiate through your. You will stop doubting yourself and start really living.
You will remember that your essence is wise, wild and free.
“Nourishing, nurturing, relaxing, inspiring, beautiful, incredible…. please save my place at every one of your Retreats!”

WHERE SHALL WE STAY?
The island's accommodation consists of two beautifully renovated, traditional white washed, blue shuttered houses - the Main house, and the Villa. 5 twin rooms, with only space for 10 guests per retreat, making this an intimate and very personal experience.
The rooms are a mix of traditional features and contemporary design and are individual in shape, size, style. Tastefully furnished throughout with 100% cotton sheets, towels, beach wraps, hypoallergenic pillows and mosquito netting. We also provide 100% natural, locally make toiletries and insect repellent. All the rooms have built in cupboards and spectacular views of either the island or the crystal blue Aegean sea. All that you could need to be comfortable, unpack and make yourself at home.
The week retreat is all inclusive, based on the room that you choose and rates is per person sharing per week. Rooms may be booked as single occupancy, however both beds will need to be purchased.
WHAT SHALL WE EAT?
To embrace a healthy lifestyle we promote a vegetarian diet consisting of pure, simple, natural foods which are easily digested and promote health.
Three vegetarian meals, inspired by the Mediterranean diet will be provided daily. All our produce is seasonal, organic and locally sourced. Fertile mountain slopes and bountiful sunshine produce some of the tastiest sun ripened fruit and vegetables which when prepared with love (and our own extra virgin olive oil) result in mouth watering, nutritious and delicious cuisine. The meals will be served at our outdoor table or in our sheltered dining area, both overlooking the Aegean Sea.
Fresh coffee, a variety of teas and healthy snacks will be available at all times.
Lissa and Corne from Silver Island have published a cookery book with ideas from the retreat for wholesome delicious food. CLICK HERE to learn more about the book.
